Newsleaf a newsletter for all members of Team Harrogate.

 

We have tended to share news and give updates on projects at our regular meetings.  This is useful but not everyone can attend each meeting which is why we have come up with the idea of a bi-monthly newsletter so that we can hear everyone's snippets of news.

 

Although Harrogate in Bloom (HIB) is editing and producing the publication, it is your newsletter so keep the stories coming.  We do hope that those members who have websites will be able to create a section where Newsleaf can be displayed so that even more people can hear about what Team Harrogate is doing.

 

Newsleaf is being sponsored by Harrogate Spring Water  who have recently agreed to become a partner of Harrogate in Bloom.  We are extremely grateful for this sponsorship.

Wine and roses but it is the name of a plant!

Montpellier is a beautiful part of town with lovely shops and restaurants.  Do pop into see Andy and pick up a leaflet about upcoming wine tasting events.
